Compared to most music festivals, which can frankly be a hassle, Phono del Sol is a walk in the park. Held at Potrero del Sol, the large, sunny patch of grass and with a concrete skatepark bounded by Cesar Chavez and the 101, this low-key, one-day, convivial neighborhood music and food fest is thrown by local tastemakers The Bay Bridged, a nonprofit arts organization and publication. For this seventh year of Phono del Sol, they've scored 10 acts for the day of Saturday, June 17.
SF-founded garage-punk heavyweights Thee Oh Sees headline the lineup, which also includes funk rapper DUCKWRTH, Oakland indie gem Jay Som, and more. As is customary, there's a lineup release video to go with the new intel:
